Fantastic podcast

Foreign office is really an outstanding podcast. Weiss mixes discussions of current global affairs with a bit of history thrown in. The guests provide some really interesting perspectives, much of it (but not exclusively) focused in Russian affairs around the globe. Give it a listen. If anything, you’ll learn never to trust the FSB (not that anyone would want to go begin with!)
